Interaction with guests
The week prior to your stay I will send you a one-page information sheet by email which has all the necessary details you will need for your stay. I don't live in the country and so won't be there to hand over keys and show you around, however, everything you need to know about Shutters is in an A-Z 'house-book' and includes things to 'see and do' in the area including information about where to eat and shop. If you would like to speak to me in person I am always there to help and I include my telephone details on my email correspondence. Enjoy your stay!
